View Full Version : Is it bad to tighten the screws too much on tuners?

My Bushman Jenny wasn't staying in tune. The tuners would physically detune from being to loose when I tried to tighten my G string! So I screwed the screws tighter. In the past, before I did this, it would detune a lot and I noticed the tight screwing made it detune less. My concern is whether or not screwing it too tight might cause problems further down the road? :confused:

naw, as long as you can still turn the tuner with your fingers, you're golden :rock:

i keep my friction tuners pretty tight as I have a habit of bumping them from time to time.
